The information below includes data from the IGI, full details from the original parish registers and data from various censuses and wills.  The actual data is therefore accurate but the links which I have made represent my best guess.  Where possible I have annotated the data to show my reasoning.  Please contact us via our Gateway Page if you can add (or subtract) anything from this information.
